Humanism and Life Extention

So, fellow humanists, what do you think of the idea of life extention? I'm talking about such things like extending the period of youthful health, mitigating the debilitating - and, quite frankly, nightmarish - effects of aging, and so on. Considering that aging and aging-related diseases are the biggest (or at least one of the biggest) sources of human suffering, both physical and mental, i think it is a must for a humanist to support anti-aging research, at least vocally. Your thoughts?

Edit: A little post-scriptum: if you want to know more about the current state of life-extention research and ask some topical questions to knowledgabe laymen and some actual scientists, check out the longevity Discord server:https://discord.gg/ftSbffu
